You may have seen this imposing building during your travels in the Great Haseley area of Oxfordshire. Sadly, it has fallen into neglect and the years have taken their toll. A major restoration project is now underway, aiming to return this historic building to its former glory. Follow the progress of the restoration in our blog....

Cap framing in the rain

Having chosen to build the cap outside, we are having to work in (brief) windows of fine weather. The sprattle and tail beam are now morticed in, so the basic cap frame is together.

Oh, it's raining again. What a change.

At least we've got the hang of arranging the tarpaulin now, so we don't have an olympic sized swimming pool to drain off every morning.
